The Playing -> Terrapin seems strange. Playing in the Band
seems to bring you back to reality (day break on the land)
after the dark spacy world of Terrapin Station. It just does not fit into the flow of things the other way.

Here's an fine Example

I've always felt that Playin' always opened up and could spin out into anything not just Terrapin but anywhere. Never had the feeling of it bring me back to reality.

Think about the Playin>>?? combos - they are endless

Ever think it could be that it's harder to steer into Terrapin than a lot of other tunes - Terrapin is one of the most structured songs the band ever played (Help>Slip another) - thus a less balls out jam when arriving at Terrapin Station?

Have the boys ever even tried a true JAM into Help on the Way? I can't remember one.
